CBC propaganda fail

Skimming the mainstream news for any trace of truth, the Orwellian term "protest zone" caught my eye. It turns out this article was well worth my attention because it alerted me to a blatant propaganda piece aimed at convincing Canadians that free speech and lawful protest should be relegated to the city park.

Is this considered investigative journalism? According to the unnamed writer of the article, "Designated speech areas are designed to give protesters a safe place to gather, make their voices heard and access the media." Is this pseudo-person in la-la land or what?
